Sustainable Select Growth Equity

Ticker: EMGC

Investment Objective

EMPWR Sustainable Growth Equity ETF seeks to achieve long-term growth of capital by investing primarily, under normal circumstances, in equity securities of U.S. mid capitalization issuers that meet the Emerge ETF’s Sustainability investment criteria.

The investment objectives of the Emerge ETF can only be changed with the approval of a majority of the unitholders at a meeting called for such purpose.

Fund Description

In order to achieve its investment objective, this Emerge ETF invests at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities of mid-capitalization issuers in the U.S. that, at the time of investment, meet the Emerge ETF’s Sustainability investment criteria.

Grace Capital applies a “bottom-up” research process that seeks to identify companies that it believes have long-term positive fundamentals trading at a discount to fair value based on Grace Capital’s proprietary discounted cash flow, valuation models. Grace Capital identifies securities for investment that it believes have the potential for earnings or revenue growth, including companies it believes have the ability to pay high dividends. Grace Capital’s strategy primarily focuses on identifying issuers that it believes have histories of steady revenue growth, consistent cash flow profitability, and earnings quality. Grace Capital identifies securities to be sold for several reasons, including when it believes the security is overvalued.
